Bill Rancic: I’m Looking Forward To “The Little Things” Of Fatherhood

The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic and his lovely wife, Giuliana, have an exciting year ahead of them with the expected birth of their first child via gestational surrogate.

The 41-year old entrepreneur – who believes that the couple has hit the ‘gestational carrier lottery’ – opened up to Parade about fatherhood, what Jr. will be named and who will play the bad cop.

On baby names: “We’re still playing with names. You won’t see any juniors. I think you have to earn that title. If one day we have a son and he chooses to name his son after me, then I’ve earned it! I did a good job as a father and I made him proud. I don’t think it’s something you force on someone. It’s got to be earned. I would never do that. Although Giuliana would like to see a Giuliana Jr., I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

On who will be the disciplinarian: “I hate to say it but she’s going to be the tough one, believe it or not. I’m the softie. When we’re around my nephews, I’m a pushover. She lays down the law. She’s tough. Her parents were very strict. She was never allowed to sleepover at people’s homes. They ran a really tight operation in her house so I think she will surprisingly be the disciplinarian.”

On what gets him excited about fatherhood: “The little things. Falling asleep with the baby on my chest and looking at this perfect miracle. Not to get religious but if you don’t believe in a big man above, look at a baby. It’s so perfect.”

    If one day his son has a son and chooses to name him after Bill, he will not be a junior! That comment makes no sense.
